Towards A Circular Value Chain- How Mass Balancing Can Create Drop-In Solutions According To ISCC?

Mass-balancing as approach supports engineering plastic suppliers to integrate renewable materials into large-scale industry installations at ease. Due to the use of our easy drop-in solutions, customers can reduce their own carbon footprint by saving fossil resources and ensuring a fast implementation at consistent high quality. No need for technical modifications enhances trust and transparency into this mass balancing approach, by enabling the correct allocation of these materials to selected products. Learn how our mass-balancing approach shapes the circular economy of tomorrow with easy drop-in solutions for our customers, according to the ISCC PLUS* certification (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification). And on top, see which requirements have been met to be ISCC PLUS certified today.
*It is a transparent certified solution based on the third-party International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS standard.

Thermoplastic Composite-Waste Is A Valuable Raw Material

WEDS-28-OCT

16:00 CET | OnDemand

The Maezio® brand of continuous fiber-reinforced polycarbonate composites (CFRTPs) developed by Covestro are characterized by their extremely light weight, very high strength and exceptional flexibility of design. However, as like in any other process, a certain amount of waste and off-spec material is generated during production which still contains precious carbon fibers. In order to avoid incineration and therefore the loss of a valuable raw material, Covestro is looking into ways to recycle the Maezio® composite scrap and turn it into new products. Together with a partner, we are developing a process to produce injection molding compounds on an industrial scale.
  • A composite production produces waste of high value
  • Ways to bring the high value waste to new products: Maezio Marble and PC-rCF
  • Properties of those new products
